To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure
the appropriate use of information, BillDesk has put in place appropriate
procedures to safeguard the personal information that BillDesk collects
about you online. We want you to understand and be comfortable with
the key security mechanisms adopted by BillDesk. Prudent risk management practices
Login IDs and "strong"
Only you have the ability to access your BillDesk account through
the Login ID and Password that you created during registration.
User IDs and passwords restrict access to your BillDesk account
exactly the way your personal identification number (PIN) protects
your bank account at ATM machines.
BillDesk requires "strong" passwords that include a mix of uppercase,
lowercase, numeric, and non-alphanumeric characters. Many web
sites do not require strong passwords, but BillDesk believes that
this additional security is important in safeguarding your personal
and financial information. Please safegaurd this Login ID and
Strong data encryption
At BillDesk, we use Secure Sockets Layer ('SSL') technology to
encrypt information exchange. Unlike normal Internet communication,
information provided to us at BillDesk is sent in a "secure session"
established with SSL. SSL is a security protocol that provides
data encryption, server authentication, and message integrity
for a connection to the Internet. Using SSL ensures that the information
you exchange with BillDesk is never transmitted over the Internet
unencrypted and therefore cannot be viewed by unauthorized individuals.
This encryption is done using 128-bit encryption, the maximum
level of encryption possible on the Internet comparable to security
levels used by financial institutions.
There are easy ways to tell if your browser is using a secure
connection. One way is to look for a locked padlock icon at the
bottom of your browser window:
Another way is to look for the change from the normal "http:"
at the beginning of the web page address to "https:" :
The "s" indicates a secure connection! When you see those signs,
you can rest assured that your online information is secure.
In the interest of security, we suggest that you end your browser
session before leaving your computer.
Safe data storage
and Access control
Your data resides safely in the BillDesk database and is protected
by a firewall. This firewall is configured to receive and
process requests only from authorized personnel. It can also detect
any unauthorized activity around our servers. Further, some of
the highly critical information such as your password, secret
question, answer, etc are stored in the database in a hashed format,
thereby preventing misuse of data even by any remote possibility.
We take regular back-ups of your data so that appropriate recovery
measures can be initiated of the latest information if there are
